The neem tree has long been revered in India for its numerous benefits. For centuries, the Indian people used the juice of neem leaves to make their skin look more radiant, drank neem tea as a tonic, used neem to clean their teeth, and used neem leaves as a natural bug repellent. Because of its wide variety of applications, it is commonly called “the village pharmacy.”
Neem leaf is famous in ayurvedic texts for having an almost magical effect on the skin. Traditionally used in ayurvedic remedies for its purifying quality, the neem leaves were crushed into a paste and applied directly to problem skin.
Neem leaf has both pungent and astringent tastes. According to Maharishi Ayurveda, the neem leaf is especially useful in balancing Pitta dosha and to some extent Kapha dosha (two of three mind-body types in ayurveda). It helps remove ama and other toxins from the body, helps purify the blood, and helps neutralize damaging free radicals, thus nourishing more radiant skin.
